[Sticky] Steam Account Scam

Hey guys,

Just to warn you, if you get any messages telling you to click this link to see a thread from ANY website from "steamcommunity", check the link and the sentence carefully. Most recent scam is "steamcommunity.tk"

CAUTION: The scam websites below are for information purposes only. It is recommended NOT to visit the URL. All links in red are DANGEROUS links.

Known Scam Websites:

  • Steamcommunity.tk

If you are unlucky enough to be affected (or even if you think you have), try to log back onto your account as soon as possible and CHANGE THE PASSWORD. This will stop the scammer re-accessing your account and having it permanently taken and all games with it.

If you are too late, you need to contact steam support via this website. They will take a while to reply, but they will be able to help you.

Keep your steam credentials safe,

GND

Good looking out. I got one this morning to that URL from a guy called Cpt. Awesome. If anyone is friends with him, remove him off your list.

You guys should verify the email on your Steam account, and use different passwords on your email and Steam account. This way even if a scammer somehow finds out your Steam account password, he can't change it without access to your email.

Geez, that's the worst I've seen. Steam really needs to ramp up their security. 😐
